The parlor floor has an open flow from front to rear. It encompasses a gracious formal parlor with an over-sized mahogany mirror and triple bay window. It flows into a center parlor/library with a lovely restored mantel. All rooms on this floor are united by gorgeously restored parquet floors. The dining room, with beamed ceiling, wainscotting, and a bay window with window seat, is warm and wonderful. A newly designed powder room was added to this floor as well.
The kitchen is located in a large extension and is flooded with light from 2 sides overlooking a beautiful private garden. The white cabinetry is solid wood and custom made, offering massive storage. The counter tops are Quartzite and the appliances include a SubZero fridge, a Wolf range, and a Miele dishwasher. An adjacent stairwell leads directly to the garden from here.
The second floor houses a luxurious master suite encompassing a sophisticated en-suite bath. Storage includes a large closet and a fabulous dressing room. The master bath features a double sink, a stand in shower, a marble encased cast iron bathtub, glass tiles from Anne Sacks and hardware from Waterworks. Natural light flows in from the oversized window and radiant heat warms the floor.
The beautifully designed media room is a perfect in-home theater. The pre-war original details are juxtaposed seamlessly with modern day touches. Set in a well proportioned room with four large windows and original parquet floors are gorgeous dark grey walls and custom crafted built in shelves. The state-of-the-art motorized roller shades, projector and screen complete your cinematic experience.
This floor also houses a separate laundry room.
Upstairs you will find two additional bedrooms, a full bath, an office replete with kitchenette, and a separate dressing room or nursery. Both bedrooms are spacious and bright with walk in closets. The renovated bathroom showcases a stunning turn of the century stained glass window, which perfectly complements the clean, white lines of the contemporary bathroom. The 3rd floor location offers secluded work space and the skylight provides light.
The completely refurbished and well designed English basement houses a professional work studio with exposed wood beams, overhead windows and a custom crafted barn door to close off the space. The floors have been finished and epoxied white throughout. On this level there is also a rec room, a half bath and a second, back stairwell to the garden.
The southern facing 550 SF garden is a peaceful sanctuary. Lovingly refurbished by its owners, it features blue stone pavers, a landscaped perimeter with perennials and potted, aromatic herbs.
In sum, 602 6th Street is that elusive blend of the old world townhouse and up-to-the-minute renovation. At 4,500+ square feet, nothing is missing. In addition, the renovation is one of the most tasteful and high quality we have ever seen.
